Mexican Blackbird - ZZ Top

words to study

If you're down in Acuna and you ain't up to being alone

don't spend all your money on just any honey that's grown.

Go find the Mexican blackbird and send all your troubles back home.

They all call her her "puta" 'cause no one really knows her name.

She works the cantina, dancin' and a-lovin's her trade.

Her mama was Mez'can and her daddy was the ace of spades.
